The raft of undelivered mail was discovered after someone reported to the US Postal Service Office of Inspector General that a Nissan Pathfinder parked in Brooklyn contained multiple full blue mailbags. The biggest hoard of packages and letters was in the mailman's vehicle, according to New York's local news outlet Pix11, estimating that the Nissan contained around 10,000 pieces of undelivered mail.

An "overwhelmed" New York City postal worker stashed more than 17,000 pieces of mail in his home, auto and work locker rather than delivering them, authorities said.

Federal officials say they arrested the 16-year employee after receiving a tip about a auto owned by Germash that contained 20 full mail bags.

He declined to comment as he left the federal courthouse.
